Onions

Healing powers: Don’t let the potential stinky breath deter you from this super food. Onions healing powers include fighting cancer (prostate and esophageal) and reducing the mortality rate from coronary heart disease. Other great news for your heart - onions lower blood pressure. Onions battle cold and flue symptoms and help fight pain and swelling related to arthritis.

Serving information: Serving information:If you can, eat one a day, but if that’s not possible, try integrating them into your diet with more regularity.They’re best and most nutritious raw, but lightly cooked yields great results as well. Store your onions at room temperature and to prevent watery eyes when you cut them, stick them in the fridge for an hour first.

Carrots

Healing powers: Popeye wasn’t the only cartoon who know the benefits of veggies, remember Bugs Bunny? He always had a carrot in hand, and with good reason, carrots are truly a super food. They are loaded with carotenoids which decrease post-menopausal breast cancer as well as bladder, cervix, prostate, larynx and esophagus cancer. A single carrot a day cuts your risk for lung cancer in half. That’s a big win!

The rumors about carrots being good for your eyes are all true, they contain the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, which work together to promote eye health and prevent macular degeneration, cataracts and night blindness. In Chinese medicine, carrots are used to treat rheumatism, kidney stones, tumors, indigestion, diarrhea, night blindness, ear infections, earaches, deafness, skin lesions, urinary tract infections, coughs, and constipation.

Serving information: Like spinach, carrots are available year round and there’s never too much of a good thing. They are tasty raw or lightly cooked. Remove carrot tops before storing them in the fridge, as the tops drain moisture from the roots and will cause the carrots to wilt.

Broccoli

Healing powers: Broccoli truly is a super food with healing powers. A single cup of steamed broccoli provides more than 200 percent of the RDA for vitamin C (more than oranges), nearly as much of vitamin K, and about half of the daily allowance for vitamin A, along with plentiful folate, fiber, sulfur, iron, B vitamins, and so much more! Not only that, but broccoli contains about twice the amount of protein as steak, and a lot more protective phytonutrients called indoles help protect against prostate, gastric, skin, breast, and cervical cancers. Some research suggests that indoles also protect the structure of DNA and may reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

The phytochemicals contained fight cancer by neutralizing carcinogens and accelerating their elimination from the body, in addition to inhibiting tumors caused by chemical carcinogens. These substances, according to studies, help prevent lung and esophageal cancers and may play a role in lowering the risk of other cancers, including gastrointestinal cancer. Broccoli is used to treat eye inflammation, according to Chinese medicine.
